In order to solve a power consumption problem of the driver stage in the cathode-follower RF system, a grid-cathode driving scheme is investigated by means of an isolation transformer. A very low output impedance can be realized together with a voltage gain a few tens of times higher than that of a cathode-follower. The model system has been tested under frequency modulation in the 1-3-MHz range at 40-Hz repetition; the output impedance is less than 30 Ω and the driver voltage 62 V to produce a 1.2-kV peak at the cavity gap
